Top impressionist and comedian Rory Bremner will be the host at this year’s charity ball to support Cotswold Lakes Trust.
The Cotswold Water Park Ball at the De Vere Cotswold Water Park Hotel on October 15 will see more than 300 guests wine, dine and dance the night away to the Curious Little Big Band. There will also be a charity auction and raffle.
An additional final 30 tickets have just been released at £70 each.
The aim is to raise funds for Cotswold Lakes Trust, a charity dedicated to the conservation of the Cotswold Water Park – a network of 180 lakes stretching across 42 square miles from South Cerney in the north and Somerford Keynes in the west, to Cricklade in the south and Lechlade in the east.
Paul Hazel, executive chairman of Cotswold Lakes Trust, was thrilled to announce that Rory Bremner had agreed to be host.
“We are delighted to be able to hold this prestigious Ball which is our biggest fundraising event of the year.
“All the money raised from the evening will go towards our charitable activities in the Cotswold Water Park,” he said.
He added that Cotswold Lakes Trust is uniquely placed to act as the driving force in conservation, enhancement and environmental protection in the Water Park.
Based in Down Ampney, Cotswold Lakes Trust is governed by a Board of Trustees who are all volunteers. They oversee the work of a team of seven staff, assisted by further volunteers.
The charity receives no core funding from central or local government and relies heavily on donations and fundraising events such as the annual Cotswold Water Park Ball.
The Cotswold Water Park is nationally recognised as a unique wetland area and is home to tens of thousands of water birds, 20,000 residents and welcomes one million visitors per year.
Rory Bremner is best known as a panellist on TV’s Mock the Week and for his sketch comedy series Bremner, Bird and Fortune.
